Last month, Celebrate Outreach’s Saturday morning breakfast served a full breakfast to 758 homeless and marginally housed people. Also last month, we received $0 from outside contributors.
Fortunately, unlike Blanche Dubois, Celebrate Outreach has always been able to count on the kindness of our friends.
Calvary Church in Clearwater and in Seminole each sponsor one weekend a month, supplying food, supplies and workers. Drag Queen Bingo largely supports the rest of the breakfasts.
This Wednesday, January 16 friends of the Saturday breakfast will gather at Hamburger Mary’s, 2901 Tyrone Blvd. N. in St Pete for Anything Goes Bingo with drag queen caller Miranda Sugarbaker (motto: “This ain’t your gramma’s bingo”). We guarantee food, friends, double entendres, single entendres, and a lot of fun. The website information for the bingo is here,
If you haven’t called to reserve, please call today. And don’t forget to bring a bevy of your chums for the drag queen bingo competition. There will be two fabulous trophies awarded: one for the group with the most members in attendance and one for the group with the most bingo winners. Don’t have a group? Get some people together, name yourselves, and come on down! Or come on your own. You can play solo or depend upon the kindness of strangers: organize a group on the spot!
In the past, Drag Queen Bingo has raised enough money to finance the breakfast for sixth months, and we hope to do that again.
Bingo sheets are available for a $10.00 cash donation. There will be gift bags for the winners, including wine from American Spirits and a gift certificate from Haslam’s Books. (Just keepin’ it local.)
The restaurant will seat people from 5:30-6:30. Bingo starts at 7:00.
Call Hamburger Mary’s at (727) 851-9386 to reserve seats. Please call ASAP.
Call us at (727) 894-2832 if you have any questions. See you Wednesday, January 16, and, as always, thanks to the kindness of our friends from everyone at the Saturday morning breakfast.
